Gamified yoga app for HoloLens

more info

YOGAR is a yoga app for HoloLens. It provides a 3D learning experience through Mixed Reality (MR), which allows people to study yoga interactively in a familiar space with a calming, spatial illusion. Learners see marks in space, hear audio instructions, and watch as relaxing videos guide them through each pose.

Hey PH, Yinghua from YOGAR here. I built the app because many people fail to learn yoga through current methods, such as watching Youtube videos, mobile apps, or in-person yoga instructors. These methods all require learners to focus on a screen or the instructor, instead of on the movement of their own body, straining their neck to see the original throughout the session. This is against yoga’s philosophy - listening to the body and gaining inner strength. YOGAR provides a 3D learning experience through Mixed Reality (MR), which allows people to study yoga interactively in a familiar space with a calming, spatial illusion. Learners see marks in space, hear audio instructions, and watch as relaxing videos guide them through each pose. I'd love to get some feedback and I'm happy to answer questions!

@yinghua_yang 2年前我就想到这个idea了,不过我不是做开发的。现在AR/MR,时机还未到,不过慢慢优化吧。HoloLens太贵了,换便宜的平台吧。

Cool idea but one of the pillars of yoga is to clear your mind. I think slapping an augmented reality headset on might detract from that.

@joshuapinter Great point, Joshua! This app is a sneak peek into the future. I believe AR headsets will eventually become something smaller, lighter, and more invisible, such as AR contact lens

Looks interesting! Although have you had any trouble with people being unable to do certain poses since they were wearing the headset?
